Salmonsaladsandwich Posted April 1, 2015 Share Posted April 1, 2015 I noticed, while feeding some baby dubias, that one of the tiny nymphs looked weird. It appeared to have wing buds like a subadult male even though it was only a fraction of an inch. Here's a zoomed in picture of the nymph next to a penny for size comparison- it's kind of blurry but you can just barely see the wing buds on the left side: http://s1303.photobucket.com/user/salmonsaladsandwic/media/image.jpg1_zpsvmbrlmpp.jpg.html?sort=3&o=1 So I dug through the bin a little bit, and to my astonishment I found what appeared to be a tiny adult male dubia with full sized wings! http://s1303.photobucket.com/user/salmonsaladsandwic/media/image.jpg2_zpsduaobpyx.jpg.html?sort=3&o=2 A little more searching not only turned up two more winged males: http://s1303.photobucket.com/user/salmonsaladsandwic/media/image.jpg3_zpsqcyzvxod.jpg.html?sort=3&o=3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
